Cable TV stops working after a few seconds when passing though xbox and then A/V receiver.

So If i connect my cable box to my A/V reciever and then to the TV all is fine...

If i connect my cable box to the xbox and then directly to the tv all is fine...

BUT.

If i go from 

Cable box->Xbox->A/V Reciever->TV I cannot get my tv to work... what happens is if i power cycle my cable box while its setup like the the cable will work fine for a few seconds and then freeze and/or the screen will go black and never come back.

If it matters:

  • Motorola Cable Box
  • Xbox One
  • Onkyo 5.1 A/V reciver
  • LG 55' w/ built inGoogle TV
Can anyone help?

I unfortunately have the same issues. I'm assuming you use Att Uverse from the Motorola mention. It seems to be a buffering issue. I've tried different HDMI cables and Uverse boxes. Power cycling is the only solution I've found so far.. Besides a hardware solution of an HDMI switcher. Sorry I wish I had better news. If I figure something out I will let you know

I have the same issue as well.  Denon receiver..  FIOS TV/Motorola Cable Box.  everything works fine for TV passthrough when connected straight to the TV, but as soon as I ad the AV receiver, TV signal goes black and TV cuts in and out.  hopefully something that will get fixed in the future.  I'm not sacrificing all of my other setups on my home theatre just to have the TV passthrough, but it's disappointing this doesn't seem to work with an AV receiver right now.

Ditto, video and sound pauses for several seconds sometimes when switching channels.  And I can't seem to get surround sound consistently either.  The xbox is set to surround sound output but it keeps showing up as stereo in the receiver.  I read in another thread to try the receivers surround settings.

Notice the last two bullets:

Basic setup with an audio/video receiver

With an audio/video (A/V) receiver, the best and most direct option is to connect the devices sequentially:

1.Connect your set-top box HDMI output to the Xbox One HDMI input.

2.Connect the Xbox One HDMI output to your A/V HDMI input.

3.Connect your A/V HDMI output to the HDMI input on your television.

Notes

•This option requires that all devices support audio over HDMI.

•Surround sound from your set-top box will not be passed through the Xbox One.

•When you perform this kind of basic setup with an A/V receiver, you’re passing both audio and video through another device. Depending on your equipment, there is a small risk of audio or video lag.
